This is a really good Bertha. Jerry repeats a really nice lilting motif throughout the song, one I've never heard him do before.
The rest of the show is quality mid-1978. Bob's slide playing is present, but it isn't terrible save for a few seconds during Werewolves of London.

Eyes... not so much.
Good show for sure. But the Eyes, they are just too fast in 78. Must have been something in the water. The '77 eyes are so much mellower and slower. It seems they lost the essence only a few months later. Check out the Englishtown eyes, oh yes... From an old curmudgeon.

All fucked up
Love the arguing after the Ship of Fools. Ends with Weir saying 'truth is you guys are all fucked up'. Classic.

i was there
and it was one of the most memorable of any shows. i was immediately hooked on the dead and went on to see over a hundred shows after this show until '95. i can still remember jerry smiling and dancing onstage and an awesome energy onstage and between jerry and bob, especially. so tight, mix was good and voices sweet, donna was a real presence too.
didn't want to leave the arena after it ended with a fantastic werewolves encore.

White Mountain werewolves!
A nice first set tune selection wise and tight.
A good second set with great sound.
Bertha> Good Lovin, Ship, Est >Eyes
Listen to Phil go up one side of N.F.A and come back down the other.
A mighty fine place to see the Dead!
Werewolves for Cinco De Mayo?

Good 78 show
I'm not a big 78 fan but this is definitely a good show. My standouts were the Estimated>Eyes (good bounce to the eyes) and a nice Lazy Lightning>Supplication.

Easily the best Estimated I've ever heard. Jerry's "middle solo" is unbelievably jaw-dropping. Killer Eyes, NFA, Stella blue also; whole back end of this is excellent.

Five Days Before my First Show
I can't get enough of this show! We need a soundboard of New Haven, 5.10.78 Anyone?

Can't believe the lack of reviews for this show. Oh well. I won't mince words, Estimated>Eyes is fuckin' amazing. Everyone sounds great and goddamn, Jerry is tearing it up with that wah.
